    It's an ultimate conflict between free markets and democracy. What it shows me is that the two aren't actually perfectly compatible, at least with a vigorous interpretation of "one man, one vote." But if something has to fall, for me, it's democracy. That doesn't mean we take away votes, but trying so hard to "equalize" votes by "equalizing" political speech if fuckin' ludicrous. And it's socialism, but sheet, we're already there, comrades.
